Any goods to be returned, must be in a re-saleable condition, and in its original packaging, in most cases, if the items simply need repackaging then a 10% charge per item will be made. Please note it is your responsibility to ensure the goods are well packaged, as we will not refund any item that reaches us with damage caused during transit, nor will we refund items lost in transit back to us, as we will only refund for items that we actually receive back. If the returned item/s are in an incomplete state, for example a profile handle missing its fixing screws, then we will be unable to issue a refund. Costs for return postage are payable by the customer, unless the product is defective. We recommend using a recorded and insured service as we cannot be responsible for damages or lost deliveries. If you wish to send the item/s back 2nd class standard delivery with Royal Mail to keep your costs down, please ensure you obtain proof of postage until your goods value have been refunded back to you, as any item lost in transit back to us will not be refunded and you will need to claim compensation from the delivery service you used to ship the return.

Goods that are not general stock items and have to be ordered in at request can still be returned but will have a 20% restocking fee applied.
We will refund the cost of standard or recorded postage incurred if the product was incorrectly sent by us, or where the product has been returned due to a defect, the maximum paid will be £7.99. However, we will not refund any courier, overnight or express element of any delivery or postage charge including Royal mail special delivery.
